Absentee Voting

Attention Voters! If you have NOT received your ballot within 7-10 days after it was mailed, we urge you to take action. Your voice matters, and we want to ensure every eligible voter can participate in the upcoming election.

Here's what you need to do:

1. Check Your Ballot Status: To track the status of your mailed ballot, you can conveniently check your “issue date” on the Secretary of State’s My Voter Page. This will allow you to monitor when your ballot was mailed and/or acceptance status, ensuring transparency and peace of mind throughout the process.

2. Contact Us: If your ballot has not arrived within 7-10 days of being mailed, please reach out to us immediately. We're here to assist you and ensure you receive your ballot in time to cast your vote.

3. Vote in Person if Necessary: You still have the opportunity to exercise your right to vote by going to a Fulton County Advance Voting location or to your designated polling place on Election Day. You can find your designated Election Day polling site at the Secretary of State My Voter Page

Remember, every vote counts, and we're committed to ensuring every eligible voter can participate in the democratic process. If you encounter any issues or have questions, don't hesitate to reach out to our team.
